Walgreens 1922 Malted
From a detour discussion from the thread about favorite appliances on the countertop:
A new thread since we're drifting away from countertop appliances... An employee at Walgreens in Chicago is credited with inventing the Malted- a "Pop" Coulson, in 1922. A link to that history and info about milkshakes, etc:
About the Walgreens recipe, I found one on-line at:
The one I copied down a few years ago is a variation as follows:
2 cups vanilla ice cream
2/3 cups cold milk
2 T malted milk powder (Horlicks brand or other brand).
2 T chocolate syrup
Dampen your glass and place in freezer for a short time.
In blender, combine these 4 ingredients. Cover and process until smooth.
Get the glass out of the freezer and pour the malted into the chilled, frosted glass.
Dollop of whipped cream "and a cherry on top."
Serve immediately. Yield: 1- 2 servings.
In our house, we sometimes add "our secret ingredients," such as a capful or two of vanilla extract, and a small tray-full of very mini ice cubes (prior to any blending). Make sure the blender can crush up ice cubes.
Also, at our house, with my background as being from the New York area, the chocolate syrup brand has to be Brooklyn's U-bet brand. The soda fountain people at a Walgreens in Chicago in 1922 probably would not get out the U-bet, though.
